A New Breed
The SLK was one of the originals of the modern hard top convertibles. Some owners suffered from marked roofs at first, while Mercedes sorted out the niggles in what was a new system for them. In German SLK stands for Sportlich, Leicht und Kurz, which translates to Sport, Light and Short, which is a reflection of Mercedes design philosophy for the little roadster.
An Instant Hit
In its first year the SLK enjoyed impressive sales figures, with 55,000 units being sold. It continued to produce impressive sales figures for such a niche market, selling over 300,000 SLKs in the following 7 years. The SLK took the fight directly to the BMW Z3 and the Porsche Boxster. The combination of the new design Vario-Roof, and the sporty looks, has secured the SLK a spot in enthusiasts’ hearts.
